Billy Bat: Art In The Face Of Apocalypse

Billy Bat: Art In The Face Of Apocalypse

The best description I’ve come up with for the 2008-2016 manga Billy Bat by Naoki Urasawa and Takashi Nagasaki is “the story of a comic that can tell the future over the course of a century.” That is a very simple version that ignores all the complexities and various twists and turns. It’s easier to say that Billy Bat is pure concentrated Naoki Urasawa. A vast conspiracy book with loads of characters and small human moments that give the book life.
